REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myoscience is pleased to announce that the iovera°® system has won in the medical category of the GOOD DESIGNTM competition. GOOD DESIGN recognizes the world's most important consumer design products and is one of the most prestigious and oldest design awards. The awards are organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.
Over 700 new products and graphic designs were selected from more than 38 countries for categories including electronics, robotics, children's products and transportation. The winning entries were awarded for innovation in a variety of areas such as sustainability, creativity, human impact, technology and universal design.
The iovera° system, developed by myoscience, inc. harnesses the power of cold using Focused Cold TherapyTM, the advanced technology that powers the device. The iovera° treatment works immediately for both health and beauty applications without leaving any toxins or chemicals behind in the body. The iovera° system is approved in the European Union and Canada for the treatment of wrinkles, and is FDA cleared for the treatment of pain in the United States.
"The iovera° system was designed to change the way that physicians address the temporary treatment for pain and wrinkles," says myoscience CEO Clint Carnell. "The Focused Cold Therapy technology enables physicians to treat using only the power of cold delivered with a simple and intuitive one-button device. The engineers and designers at LUNAR worked hard in collaboration with the myoscience team to ensure we created a beautiful and effective product." This is the second design award for the iovera° system, following on the heels of the Spark! Design award, where the iovera° system received the highest honors in the general consumer design category.
